Off the back of their highly-anticipated launch in Australasia last month, Dash Cam manufacturing market share leader (US, UK, Europe) Nextbase are excited to announce that their globally multi-awarded premium 622GW 4K model is now available to keep Australians extra safe on the roads with improved, world-first SOS features, bad weather mode, image stabilisation and Enhanced Night Vision.
The 622GW revolutionises the purpose and use of Dash Cams in our cars, bringing together the world-first integrated Alexa voice control, worlds-only emergency SOS alerts, and the what3words location system into a truly life-saving, smart device. As another Dash Cam first, the Nextbase 622GW also records crisp, perfectly lit 4K video with digital image stabilisation which cancels out vibrations from the vehicle and bumpy roads. As a launch special, the 622GW Dash Cam will include a free Go Pack and rear view camera. The 622GW Dash Cam joins the Nextbase Series 2 range on sale from the second half of November for AU $549.95 / NZ $599.99 RRP from Repco and Camera House in Australia, Harvey Norman in New Zealand and www.nextbase.com/en-au/
Four-time Bathurst 1000 winner Greg Murphy, ambassador for Nextbase, said that the introduction of the 622GW into the market provided a better, safer Dash Cam option for Australians and New Zealanders than ever before.
“When driving in NZ or Aus you need to be prepared for the most extreme and changeable driving conditions. This latest model Dashcam by Nextbase excels in every situation especially in the dark of night – it really is a Gamechanger in this space.
“With so many Aussie’s and Kiwi’s hitting the roads in the coming months, moreso with international travel being off the table, it’s going to be even more important to pay attention and be vigilant while driving – especially those who haven’t spent much time behind the wheel in the past few months.”
Nextbase’s Emergency SOS feature, available on the 622GW as well as selected other Nextbase Series 2 models, runs through 23 protocols to determine how serious a crash has been after it occurs. If there is no response after 60 seconds, a package of data is sent to an operations centre, who will then try to call the Dash Cam’s owner. Again, if there is no response, the emergency services will be dispatched with the integrator feeding information to the 000 operator, which can be set up to include location data, travelling direction, blood type and even next of kin details.
The Emergency SOS feature has been upgraded further in the 622GW thanks to what3words – the same application that is being introduced within Australian emergency services, with Ambulance Tasmania being the first. This geocode system pinpoints the user’s precise location within 3 metres, allowing drivers to relay their location to emergency services — even if they have no data reception or wifi. The popular geocode system has never been used before in a Dash Cam but will offer a critical, failsafe option for drivers globally.
Another first comes with the new Enhanced Night Vision, available now for the first time in a Dash Cam. Upgrades, including larger pixels and automatic brightness detection, mean that the 622GW Dash Cam brings the most intelligent and adaptive night vision yet.
As with all Nextbase Series 2 Dash Cams the 622GW includes Intelligent parking mode to protect your car in the parking lot. Using its finely tuned G-Force detection system developed in the UK, the 622GW will automatically start recording if someone bumps your vehicle to make sure their details are captured, without the need for power from your car.
“The 622GW will allow Australians to drive both smarter and safer,” explained Richard Browning, Director of Nextbase.
“As we approach the festive end of the year, we understand that lots of Aussies and Kiwis will want to hit the roads and spend precious time with their families – it’s our job to give them the tools they need in order to keep themselves protected, especially if driving occurs at night. Reducing anxiety for drivers by ensuring every part of their journey is documented has never been easier, following the release of the 622GW.”
